CONNAH’S QUAY NOMADS will want to make their mark on another part of Scotland tomorrow evening.

The Nomads are no strangers to trips north of the border having gone toe-to-toe with the likes of Kilmarnock, Queen’s Park, Falkirk, Ross County and Dumbarton in the last two years.

Victories over Kilmarnock, Falkirk and Queen’s Park have helped Andy Morrison’s men make an impression on Scotland and the Nomads boss is confident his side can do that again as they face Partick Thistle in round four in-front of the television cameras, 5.15pm kick-off.

“We’ve gone up there many times and done really well and done the Welsh league proud,” said Inverness-born Morrison. “Many, many times we’ve said that we go to these places and we embrace it, we make sure we give a good account of ourselves and we make sure that everyone knows we’ve been in town - and it will be no different.”

Morrison headed to Firhill last month to watch then-managerless Partick’s 3-0 home defeat to Dunfermline.

Since then Partick, who are rock-bottom of the Scottish Championship, have appointed Ian McCall as successor to Gary Caldwell - the new manager having an instant impact as Thistle won 3-1 at title challenging Inverness.

McCall’s first game at Firhill ended in a 1-0 defeat to Queen of the South on Saturday, but Morrison knows the new manager will have had a positive impact on a talented squad.

Former Scotland international and ex-Rangers striker Kenny Miller is the most high-profile Thistle player, while the likes of Sean McGinty and Raffaele De Vita have Football League experience and Steve Saunders is a familiar face after spending time at The New Saints.

“It’s a really difficult one because a new manager has come in,” said Morrison of his side’s challenge.

“I saw them a couple of weeks ago and they were really flat, they were a team that looked really low on confidence.

“The new man has come in and they got a fantastic result away at Inverness and I’m sure they will be up for it.

“They will want to go as far as they can and they are a terrific outfit, they really are.

“I was speaking to people when I was up there and the money they’ve put in this year to have a real go at winning the league is huge and I know they were disappointed with where they were.

“We know we are coming up against a very good team and a very good squad.”

But having knocked Scottish top-flight outfit Kilmarnock out of the Europa League, Nomads will be ready for action, especially after Morrison worked on a few things in training this week.

“Across the board we do need to be better,” said Morrison, who heads north with his squad today.

“Our organisation, desire and identity of the football club is what is getting us through and getting us results.”

Partick defender Ryan Williamson, meanwhile, is relishing the chance to lock horns with Nomads.

“It’s a cup game, it’s a competition we want to do well in and we are looking forward to it,” Williamson told Partick’s official website. “It’s a bit of different opposition and we know it will be tough, but we are at home and we’ll be going out looking to win the game, we have the players and we believe we can win any game we go into.”

Waterford and Glenavon will be representing Ireland in Scotland this weekend.

A trip to Stenhousemuir tonight lies in store for League of Ireland side Waterford, while Northern Ireland Premiership outfit Glenavon face Raith Rovers tomorrow.

Elsewhere tomorrow, Arbroath host Clyde, Elgin City visit Airdrie and Inverness entertain Alloa.

National League side Solihull Moors’ home clash with Rangers Under-21s is not due to be played until October 29.
